The Instructor

Jill Pawloski ERYT 200

I have been practicing yoga since 2007 and it has become part of my daily life. I started yoga with the suggestion of my doctor who I was seeing for anxiety and panic attacks. I had been suffering for years from anxiety and did not believe in taking anti-depressants to ease my pain...I wasn't depressed. So he suggested that I try a yoga class. I signed up for my first class at Prana Yoga and Dance Studio and was instantly hooked. The peace that I felt within me after my first practice was indescribable! It healed me. Since the day I stepped foot into Prana, I knew that this magnificent thing that I had discovered would be a part of my life forever. It was love at first savasana! I have been anxiety free for 6 years now thanks to my yoga practice!

Since yoga has changed my life so much, I wanted to bring that experience into other people's lives as well. I wanted to do yoga everyday, with everyone, for the rest of my life. I enrolled in Yoga Teacher Training 200 Hours in January of 2011 and became a Certified Yoga Teacher through Prana Yoga and Dance Studio and a Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance in November 2011. I had the honor of learning from some amazing teachers; Kathleen Kossman, Rowan Silverberg, and Holly Clemens. I am also a Certified Herbalist, certified through Parma Hospital Learning Center. I teach Vinyasa style yoga. I work passionately with children, pregnant women, anxiety and depression sufferers, bariatric surgery patients, MS sufferers, amputees, athletes, eating disorder recovery patients, seniors, beginners and intermediates!

I teach yoga practices all over the Greater Cleveland area! I am currently teaching studio classes at The Balanced Flamingo Yoga Lounge in Parma, Zen Yoga Studio in Brunswick, Roots Yoga in Strongsville, Puma Yoga in Lakewood, Hutch Sports in Medina, The River Zen Yoga Retreat Center in Medina, Bottoms Up! Yoga & Brew (at breweries in Cleveland), as well as private in home classes, corporate wellness programs, and Girl Scout Fitness Badges. In the past I owned my own yoga studio, Lily White Yoga in Strongsville and have also worked with non-profit organizations such as Fostering Hope's Hope in Balance Yoga Program for children in foster homes and The Make-A-Wish Foundation.

I love my practice. I love how it makes me feel, the way it makes me feel about others, and how it continues to change my life.
